Maplesville High School running back Brady Harrison is this week’s athlete of the week.
Harrison was sensational in the Red Devils’ victory over Jemison High School on Sept. 23. The senior led an offense that had 459 yards of total offense and scored 47 points.
In the game, Harrison led the team in rushing, picking up 185 yards off just 15 carries, averaging 12.3 yards per carry. He led the team in touchdowns, too, scoring three times on the ground. In the passing game, Harrison caught just one pass, but it was a big play as he picked up 33 yards on the reception.

Another week, another big game from Chapman for the Mustangs. Isabella High School’s star running back had a fantastic performance in the team’s win over Billingsley High School.
Chapman had 211 rushing yards in the game while scoring four times. He totaled those yards off 16 carries, averaging over 13 yards per rush. He also contributed in the passing game, gaining 73 yards off two receptions in the 45-8 victory.
